New Stamps from Chocolate Baroque!

Good morning and Happy New Year! I haven't blogged much for a while as I've been busy at work and at home but hopefully I'll be able to post a bit more regularly now. Today's card has made using one of this month's beautiful new garden stamps from Chocolate Baroque, this one is called Brick Wall and features a lovely shuttered window and a pretty tree too. You may have seen this stamp before as it was featured on The Craft Channel recently. 

I made my background using distress inks in shadeds of green and brown and then used a brick stencil and texure paste over the top. I stamped the image and coloured it with pencils, adding some flowers using a little silhouette flower stamp. I tore the coloured image out and distressed the edges with a little Gathered Twigs distress ink before layering it up over some kraft card. 

I've popped a scrap of hessian under the image and added a button topped with an old brass button to finish off. 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
